I had an idea that I don't have time to do myself, so I'll just contribute the idea. I often think it would be nice to have an easy to read visual reference for mastcam imagery of Sharp. There've now been several sequences on different sols. I imagine a base mastcam view of the whole mound, say mastcam34 at 50% resolution, overlaid with outlines (borders) of the various MC100 sequences with corresponding sol numbers. That would make it very easy to look up images of some region or other.

There are lots of variations possible. Outlines of MC34 imagery could be overlaid on a navcam mosaic. The outlines could be approximate rectangles indicating entire sequences, or the individual frames (for a lot more work).

Another variation would be to place the base image on a website and have the various outlined regions link to the jpl image site. That may get tricky with overlapping images.

For the time being, our perspective will change only slightly as we drive, so we could use some fixed base view.

A related idea, but much more work (and probably not as useful), would be to do this for foreground sequences as well. Since the view of the foreground can change a lot after each drive, you'd have to place outlines on the corresponding sol's navcam mosaics.

Nice! Very tantalizing- it looks like the ruins of an ancient city from here.

So, this is kind of interesting, maybe: looks like some kind of reflection on sol 38. Reflection off of what? Appears in both eyes.

yeah, interesting glint as you mentioned on right cam too, i remember some of those from MER as well.
i poked around SOL 37 to see if we could find another shot of the area to take the shine off whats below, but no luck. (i wish we had some sort of metadata to say what angle/elevation the pics are centered from MSL pov so we could better know where to look).

..but since poking around one seldom comes up empty handed, here's a dusty old 'bone fragment' for postulational ponderings (Headline: 'Marauding Meteorite Makes Mess of Martian Midden')

So one side of the pyramid is quite a bit different from the other--relatively smooth on the left but rougher on the right. Is that due to wind/sand erosion preferentially from one direction? Here's a detail with some photoshop filtering applied:

The blue is courtesy the "auto color" filter.

I suppose this is POB (plain old basalt)?

Or a more recent fracture surface on one side, older weathered surface on another side?

Attempt at a color Mastcam + Navcam anagylph. (Not all of the M-100 images are down yet.)
